recipes

Rituals are part of the joy of life and important rituals include celebrating, cooking and feasting. It gets close to the heart when what you are cooking and feasting on feeds your soul. Traditional foods remind us of who we are, what we like, and those we love. Feasting on our traditional foods is magical - take pleasure, delight and revel on it.

These are Puerto Rican recipes, mostly traditional but some are adapted to fit our taste buds. Extraordinary food for extraordinary people! Read my food blog.
